    Even better than when he wore the Daisy Duke cut-offs at the SSCX championships.

    That boy is crazy as hell I tell you, but he's got the skills that it doesn't matter how he dresses or what he rides. Wonder how this year in the Enduro series in Europe is going to go for him? Anyone sees any follow up to this I'm curious to see video of him ripping this beast.

    The world needs more people like this.
    Ones that do it not for the glory but just for the fun.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    "Is Adam Craig everything that's wrong with American Mountain Bike racing or everything that's right about mountain biking?"

    I think the latter.

    Am I missing it, or are these stories not even mentioning that this fatbike was bought at Walmart? Maybe they are not allow to?? Seems like that is the real scoop here...

    I didn’t see that guy today, but I did race my 9:zero:7 in Men’s Cat2 43-44 XC race at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA today. Funny stuff, got to the starting line roughly three minutes after the guys in my group started , still managed a 15th place finish out of 44 entries!!! Was great seeing the expressions on the faces of folks on those fancy-pants $4,000+ carbon weenie bikes as I gained places up the hills. Sure, I got my ass handed to me on the flat sections, but up the hills my legs felt strong pumping that 16 pounds of rotating mass (old-school double-walled Surly Large Marge DH goodness). Yes, I started three minutes late, and I can only begin to pretend to blame it on the fact that when you travel to such events with a wife and two young boys that extra time gets somehow eaten up and shot in the ass.

    My favorite part:

    "Spectator attempts to unravel the mystery of how so much rad can be stored in just one bike"

    Also the fact that he left the Walmart/Mongoose tag on the front. That is all win right there!

    He was entered in my class. I was laughing at the crushed up beer cans in his spokes. It was funny how many comments I got out there on the muk. One guy I passed said "finally a bike that is heavier than my 42lb beast" I had to tell him that unfortunately that was not true lol

    Aha, there you are. You and I met in front of the Onza booth… and then a short while later Self Propelled Devo showed up on his Surly Big Dummy cargobike. We all talked fatness.

    Here’s me having fun on the way to my 15h out of 44 finish (thanks to getting to the starting line late) pulling a “hey, I’m having fun” wheelie:

    Well guys, just to let you know I had a problem with my rear hub on mine. mongoose/pc was going to send me a whole new rear wheel but they dont have any in stock to send so they are sending me a completely new bike and told me to keep all the parts I want to off the old one and make sure I destroy the frame of the old one. So if you have problems under warranty right now is a good time to call.

    Looks like a lot of individuals are receiving a "buy one - get one free" deal. Still wonder how the hub held up for Mr Beastly since it appears as though he had a "stock" rear wheel.

    In my case, the hub shaft snapped from extreme pedal pressure at almost stalled-out speed, trying to plow through a snow bank. IMO, it's not going to snap once the bike is moving good...

    Mine actually is still ridable and works, The only issue is the coaster brake when applied sounds like someone squeezing a goose to death. That and it just slows you down so you gotta gauge when you wanna stop and start about 5ft before you normally would. LOL

    Thumpy, you should ziptie a koozie around the hub to muffle the sound.

    Have you taken it apart and greased it all?


    As far as Manuel breaking it, a lot of times elite 157-lb athletes aren't that much STRONGER than us fat guys, and they are usually smoother too. Still, it is surprising that his didn't break. Gives me hope that maybe there was one really small bad batch of these drivers.

    Grease?? Whats that? Is that the same slippery stuff I put on my VBrake pads to keep them from squalling? It makes em nice and quiet but man the bottoms of my shoes are so slick. I especially like it when I'm wearing my clipless at night I get sparkies.

    Beastly is so awesome that he only has to be present to win the race, he often allows other riders to go before him out of courtesy.

    Love Adam Craig. While in Bend last summer having a beer at 10 Barrel after a ride we saw a guy in Rabobank kit roll a manual all the way down the street, bunny hop a curb from manual then sprint away.

    Manuel Beastly.

    A local guy bought a Walmart fatbike and pulled it apart. Zero grease in the hubs and headset from the factory.

    Pretty funny. After he modded it a little (see part 2 of the story) it was kinda cool.
